I do agree that colour reversel is strange. And I'm not crazy, I took the 2 defective ones, and the on that was OK, plugged them all side by side and tried all 3 remotes one at a time. All 3 remotes are fine. Trying to set them to blue with one remote, they all react at the same time. The correct one does in fact go blue, the 2 defective ones go green.DaveOtt wrote: ↑ If you refer to the Xtreme 3-foot RGB LED USB strip w/remote which has been reported here in past, I have had several, with no problems. Looks like you just got unlucky. I have given away several to neighbours and friends. They are still around in some Ottawa stores.
update: colour reversal is strange. The strip has no manual wiring, connects to controller through 4-pin connector. Even if it were reversed, would not explain the problem as none of the LEDs would light.
Maybe it's a problem with the remote control. If possible try different ones.
But at the end of the day it doesn't matter, I disassembled the defective ones and used them with an ESP micro controller to control them over wifi and with that you can chose which pin light up which color.
